this mutton soup stall at blk115 bukit merah view is my favourite chinese mutton soup place, which is NOT saying much as i don’t know many mutton soup stalls & i had not ate here for quite many years (the ones i had taken more recently were the excellent kambing soup at bahrakath @ adam road hawker centre).
in fact, i can only remember 1 other very good mutton soup stall, which is the one at amoy street food centre. i think i also tried one along smith street many years back but no impression really. and talking about it now i recall another mutton soup stall at berseh food centre where i took the fu he turtle soup recently, but also not much recollections of the taste.
anyhow today, 2 friends suggested to have 羊肉汤 at bukit merah view. but some of us already planned to go tan ser seng at geylang 21 to have turtle soup. luckily 1 friend called TSS & found out that thursday is their rest day, so 2 of us decided to join the mutton soup gang instead, making up 4pax. 🙂
i was at the carpark at 1120am, the LED signboard said FULL alamak! 😦
fortunately turnover was fast & i got my parking lot almost immediately. the 2 friends who were earlier were already in the queue (about 4th in a 10+ person queue which grew), smart guys. we ordered 3 bowls of meat + tendon and for me, 1 bowl meat + tendon + stomach. i did not take rice.
wa….it was really shiok! didn’t miss 羊肉汤 until then as i relished the really tasty broth & the excellent meat, stomach, tendons with the chilli. i must have this again! 🙂
the queue continued to be 10+pax, and my friend said if you came after 1.30pm, likely everything was sold out, and no more liao!
anyhow, few of us are going to tan ser seng turtle soup next wednesday, so maybe i will come back to this later in sep.
